  1. An update needed on this one. It has been a joy to play over the last month or two, but I have come to a few realisations and decisions. 1. Untreated Wenge as a fretless board is not something I would consider doing again. It is too soft given the marks even my Cobalt Flats have left. 2. The neck is almost perfect, but I’d like it to be a little slimmer 3. I am very used to lined fretless, to a point that I wish I had stuck with my original plan and had gone for a lined neck So what to do? Well.... next week I am going to redo/mod my neck and end up with a lined fretless, Gabon ebony fretboard, slightly slimmer neck. Shouldn’t take me too long, so watch this space...
  2. Time flies even when you are not tinkering with wooden bits So developments..... built my son a Blue Cajon, so no more bass wanted by the youngest. So what now? Well, I am going to build a 27” scale for me instead Passive 4, 2 Bart Jazz pups from early 90’s. Mahogany body, Maple Wenge neck, 24 fret Wenge fretboard. The rest I will decide on in due course, but as I am off next week I might actually start
  3. Why not treat yourself to a full MIDI pedalboard? Due to moving to a different solution I have an MC6 midi controller (in good condition) and the midi switchable 5 loop ML5 (for all your non MIDI capable effects, in very good condition) for sale. The MC6 I got from our resident synth guru @Quatschmacher, the ML5 was bought brand spanking new. Together I was able make my pedalboard fully switchable. Switch on/off several midi and non-midi pedals at the same time. Price includes shipping, I am not looking for any trades on this as I have already "spent" the money although I would be open to trade against an Ableton Push 2 or an Akai MPC/APC. I might split, but will only sell the ML5 seperately not the MC6.

  4. And did not and still does not sound like a fretless 🤪
  5. The website shows the concept, wooden saddles, where the string runs over de full length of the saddle to get a fretless-ish tone.
  6. Fretless sound needs a fretless fretboard, this and the Neuser fretless bridge give a fretless vibe, not a fretless tone imo.
  7. http://www.mike-sabre.com/DDPFretlessBridge/ddpfretlessbridge.html Mike Sabre designed the bridge and sell them. Some pics/clarification above.
  8. @Andyjr1515 no steam used, right? I always steer away from steam for fear of bending, but I know people who call me a fool for just using heat.
  9. Black Crown Iniciate - one of the highlights of 2020 for me.
  10. That would scare the sh!t out of me...... are you heating the glue or planing off the fretboard?
  11. My new place for inserts. Like them a lot https://nectite.de/shop/ Lovely job btw!
  12. Hi mate, I’ve marked the post as Sold for you. We generally do not delete postings, so marking as Sold hopefully is fine.
  13. Great heads, just super reliable, powerful, great sounding and still relatively light.
  14. Nice work so far, the wenge is really lovely and it will surely have an aggressive bark when complete.
  15. I love that bridge design too, such a simple but smart solution.
  16. Wow, that is a nice (and heavy) piece of 12 string.
  17. Love it! Although 3 Sims is just showing off
  18. I just completed a scratch build, was about 600 quid in wood/parts/electronics etc, Depending on your choices it will quickly cost you anywhere between 200-250 on the lower side and if you go for really expensive woods and parts you can spend 1000 quid easily. And you need the correct tools of course.....
  19. A few years back Cort brought out this top of the range acoustic, the NTL-B at a for Cort pretty steep €998. For the money it is a ridiculously good bass, on par with some much higher priced acoustics, but as I am no longer using it (Covid killed the gig I bought it for) I would like to see if I can sell or trade. Price includes shipping (basic) within Europe, and for distances up to 150km or so I will even consider delivery/personal hand-over (socially distanced of course). 34" Scale Solid Spruce top Rosewood body Rosewood fretboard and headstock with binding Hipshot ultralite tuners Fishman Sonicore cable-pickup Fishman Prefix Plus Preamp Comes with quality hard case Elixir bronze strings Would absolutely consider (part)trades, mainly 2x10 cabs, 1x12 cabs, a good amp (can be "heavy", no need for D class), a high-end preamp pedal, maybe a quirky drive or filter pedal. I have all the basses I need really, so unlikely I would go for that. I hope @HumblePie you do not mind me using your pictures in the original thread below (the lighting is good on them). Please let me know if that is an issue and I will substitute immediately.
  20. My old bass! Can absolutely vouch for how good this thing sounds and plays, it must have done at least a hundred gigs with me. Fast slim neck too. And great seller.
  21. It only took 2.5 years for anyone to notice my comment was ambiguous. We agree and it is not limited to only D class.
  22. These pre-Euro basses are absolutely great value. I have owned NS5/NS6s, Euros and these and I have to say that these came very very very close to my US basses.
